Blink-182 is back in a big way. The iconic band hasn't released new music with all its original members for almost a decade, the last time being when Travis Barker, Tom DeLonge, and Mark Hoppus embarked on a late aughts and early 2010s reunion tour, punctuated with the release of their EP 'Dogs Eating Dogs' in 2012 before the members branched off and busied themselves elsewhere. But on October 11 they made a cheeky announcement: "We're coming."
"Tour’s coming. Album’s coming. Tom’s coming. Tickets on sale Monday. New song 'Edging' out Friday," they tweeted. So much had to align for this reunion to happen, as Hoppus battled cancer, DeLonge was busy with his other project Angels & Airwaves, and Barker was beating his fear of flying with the help of his now-wife Kourtney Kardashian. Apparently it's all been for the best, as DeLonge tweeted, "What if I told you we just made the best album of our career."
There’s nothing more exciting, or more potentially disappointing, than a band you once loved getting back together. Click through to see the bands that fell back into rhythm together, for better or worse.
